Nashville-based, Georgia-bred singer-songwriter, Lera Lynn's music may be hard to categorize, but that is likely why she appeals to so many. While the music business likes to wrap everything up in neat little packages, that isn't always possible. Lera's music has frequently been filed under "Americana", "Folk" and "Country." But those categorizations tell only part of the story.
"I just want to stop thinking about music as a marketing campaign," Lera says. "Ray Charles went from jazz to R&B to country. Paul McCartney will do a ballad next to 'Helter Skelter,' and not think twice. The most successful and lasting artists let inspiration steer them, not genre or marketing pitch. I'm just doing what moves me as it comes."
